Child Care Law in Practice - Advanced Professional Development [Level HE7] part-time
The professional development course on child care law in practice will be of interest to all professionals working with children in the health, social care, education and voluntary sectors.
Study on the course will develop your knowledge of child care law, enabling you to contribute towards the effective safeguarding of children in the practice setting.
The course focuses on the contemporary legal framework in relation to safeguarding children and aims to provide students with up to date and in depth knowledge, theoretical perspectives and professional skills regarding child and family law as a basis for effective safeguarding practice.
You will build background knowledge through a study of both the English legal system and UK and United Nations legislation that has an impact on children and you will learn how this legislation is applied in professional practice.
You will be expected to utilise taught sessions as a basis for independent learning. You will develop your skills of independent enquiry as you will be expected to investigate a wide range of diverse sources to demonstrate critical analysis, evaluation and the application of relevant aspects of legislation in relation to your professional practice.
You will be encouraged to engage in reflective learning through the use of a reflective diary. Elements of this work may be explored in classroom sessions and utilised in subsequent assignment work to demonstrate the integration of theory and practice.
The course will be taught using lectures, seminars, guided learning, independent study, group discussion, online materials and reflective practice. Teaching and learning will reflect your experience and professional status and previous learning and practice experiences are recognised, built upon and valued.
Applicants for the Level HE7 course will require a first degree.
